I have a list workflow that needs to run when the Item Status field changes from any other status to "Completed." It is running every time the Item Status is "Completed" and the item is modified.

 

Here is what I've tried so far:

  1. Workflow settings - start when items are modified. Using Conditional. Conditions check if current value of Item Status is "Complete AND if previous value is not equal to "Complete.

  2. Workflow settings - start when items are modified. Using Conditional. Conditions check if current value of Item Status is "Complete AND that the previous value of Item Status is not equal to the current value.

  3. Populate a variable with the contents of the Completed Date/Time field (the result of the workflow running). Set a run if action to check if the variable is empty.

Despite all of this, the workflow is still running every time the item is modified if the Item Status field is "Complete.

If the Item Status field is NOT "Complete", the workflow does not run.
